so i work at a very popular tourist and just local hotspot. we get millions of people every year and it’s great you make friends with people from different countries and the pay is relatively ok. the only part is the people, the customers make me want to quit and never leave my home ever again. for example, this lady that still makes my blood boil. lets call her susan, susan is your typical white mom that will physically abuse their child in front of you, but corporate policy prohibits you from saying anything. susan orders about 60 dollars worth of food, after i repeated her order and made sure to get a yes thats correct i charge her and she goes on her merry way. except, susan is unhappy once she receives her order because oh no thats not what she wanted. so, one of my coworkers gladly tells her its fine and she can come to the cashier window and we’ll fix it for her there. oh no that isnt good enough for susan, susan wants to know why they have “so many fucking mexicans working here that dont speak english” because we “cant take simple orders”, well susan i speak 3 fucking languages and no offense but im not mexican, but what youve shown me in the past 10 words youve spoken is you are a racist piece of shit that is raising tinier pieces of shit. but fine she wants to make a scandal we can. so we call the manager and a supervisor and they all gladly want to comp her food…prompting susan to look at me smugly and say “see thats customer service”. no susan thats a company that doesnt give a fuck that youre racist because money is their main priority.
but just like susan, i had the daily…it’s gonna be HOW MUCH? like excuse me sir or madam but you are at one of the most popular tourist spots in the nation either pay or leave. and second of all yes we do charge tax, because that is the law. and third of all no i cant give you anything for free bc we have cameras over us and we get stripped searched if they even suspect we stole from them. so please leave us alone. we’re just trying to pay for school or families or anything honestly. so fuck retail and fuck seasonal jobs and fuck getting paid minimum wage for a job that sucks the life out of you.
